Between endless landscapes, unique wildlife and vibrant cities, Africa is a destination that demands attention. And, with scenery unchanged since the 1920s glory days of the safari, its epic beauty is relived today in a host of cruise-holiday epics.
Our prime river cruise pick is the Chobe. Forming the border between Namibia and Botswana, its route carries you through verdant floodplains to showcase a true abundance of wildlife. Or, why not take in the unique history and culture of the world’s longest river – the Nile. Explore the ancient history of Egypt, from its Pyramid and Valley of the King icons to secluded river banks home to crocodiles lazing in the sun.

Then there’s the beauty of an ocean cruise. Hopping along the Atlantic coast in one of the world’s most luxurious ships takes the stress out of African travel while showcasing the continent’s sheer diversity. You’ll take in the great cities of South Africa, discover desert ghost towns in Namibia and, after stopping off at a pair of paradise islands, end with the colonial charm and jungle-clad vibrancy of Benin, Togo and Ghana.
